FRESHMAN CHECKLIST

What’s Next for Fall 2020?

Hello students! As you gear up for the fall semester, we wanted to give you the essentials for starting things off right! If you have questions don't hesitate to consult with your department or college office.

Know your official test scores now?

Now that you have your AP/IB/A-level scores, make sure that you are placed appropriately for your fall schedule (especially if a score was lower than you predicted!). Go to http://cte.illinois.edu/testing/pnp/main.html for information about cutoff scores and placements. If you have questions, feel free to contact the college office in 206 Engineering Hall. Remember that you are responsible for adjusting your courses as indicated by your actual AP, IB, or A-level scores.

Engineering Registration Help Room will be open again Aug 3rd – 21st as follows for virtual assistance:

Proficiency Exam Opportunities

If you have not already taken advantage of our proficiency testing, please go to http://cte.illinois.edu/testing/pnp/proficiency.html to learn about your proficiency test options. (e.g. If you speak a language other than English fluently, then you could take a proficiency exam to fulfill your language requirement.) Don’t wait to check the schedule and sign-up requirements! Depending on the subject, tests can take place as early as move-in day!

Need to send your most updated records or scores?

If you have updated tests scores or transcripts, please have the testing agency or college send them directly to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (our campus specifically). The Grainger College of Engineering office does not handle these. See http://registrar.illinois.edu/transcripts (to submit college course transcripts) and http://cte.illinois.edu/testing/pnp/proficiency/ap.html (submit AP scores)
